Earlier this year, the lovely Anushka Shetty became the talk of the town when she delivered a solid performance in ‘Baahubali 2’ and left fans asking for more. In the epic-drama, she was seen essaying the role of the feisty Devasena and prove her mettle as a performer. Everything about her performance—right from the body language to the dialogue delivery—was just perfect. Moreover, she also won hearts courtesy her chemistry with Prabhas. While talking about the film, she had told a senior journalist that SS Rajamouli gave a terrific character which underwent a beautiful transformation on the big screen.
“I feel Rajamouli has given me a whole arc of a woman’s life… from being a young girl to a woman, a mother… it’s beautiful,” she had added.
With ‘Baahubali 2’ in the rear view, Anushka is now gearing for the release of ‘Bhaagamathie’. The film has been directed by G Ashok and features her in a new avatar. It has already created a buzz amongst fans courtesy its shocking first look and is set to hit screens in early 2018. Now, it seems that the buzz surrounding the film is going to reach new heights.
According to a leading website, an industry insider recently watched the trailer of ‘Bhaagamathie’ and liked it a lot. Speaking about the trailer, he said that the film will feature Anushka in a never-seen-before avatar and could serve as strong proof of her abilities as a performer.
The source also added that ‘Bhaagamathie’ boasts of a terrific script that is bound to leave fans stunned.
“This is nothing like what you have seen Anushka Shetty do before. She is a revelation. The character she plays gives her ample scope to reveal her unseen side on the big screen. She will impress you and also give you goosebumps with her performance. To complement her, Bhaagamathie has a gripping story. Get ready to be awed,” he added.
Well, these are some nice revelations and are bound to make the wait for ‘Bhaagamathie’ quite difficult.
Interestingly, sometime ago, the director had revealed that the film does not fall into any one genre.
“It’s neither a biopic or nor a period drama with fantasy elements. It’s a thriller, though I wouldn’t confine it to just one genre. There are a lot of other exciting factors too in the screenplay. We will reveal more information in the teaser. The shooting of Bhaagamathie was wrapped up in July, and the post-production is on in full swing since the film has a lot of visual effects. It’s a contemporary thriller, and we are planning for a late December or early January release,” he had told a daily.
Besides Anushka, ‘Bhaagamathie’ also features Unni Mukundan and Jayaram in the lead. Sometime ago, Unni Mukundan had said that he really enjoyed working with the ‘Arundhati’ choice.
“I confess that it was a beautiful ride all the way long with one of the most beautiful girl that I have ever interacted with. A beauty which is not skin deep. A wonderful soul. It was lovely knowing you and working with you. I rather keep it short, because for some reason I don’t find words good enough to share my excitement,” he had added.
On a related note, Anushka has also been in the news in recent time because of her rumoured affair with Prabhas. Sometime ago, Prabhas had reacted to these reports and said that they were rubbish.
“When we first worked together we had decided that at no cost we would allow rumours of our linkup float around. We have been film friends for nine years now. We are very good friends. We have known each other for years but I admit sometimes when such stories start doing the rounds, then I too start wondering if there is, indeed, something between us. We know that we are not romantically involved. By the way, this is nothing new — when an actress works with an actor in more than one film, then people tend to make them a pair,’’ he had told a leading daily.
